Tim Lang is Professor Emeritus of Food Policy at City, University of London’s Centre for Food Policy which he founded in 1994. Hill farming in Lancashire in the 1970s formed his interest in the relationship between food, health, environment and culture which he’s worked on ever since. He’s a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health, President of Garden Organic and was Senior Advisor to the Food Research Collaboration linking academia with civil society, 2013-23. He was policy lead on the EAT-Lancet Commission 2019 report, and his latest book is Feeding Britain (Pelican pb 2021). He’s currently working on how to improve civil food resilience and defence.
In this session we will explore: The state of UK food resilience and security (they are not the same thing) The state of food politics (ie power and decision-making) Whether we could and should grow more food from our own resources
